Not often unfortunately. I think it’s more of time management issue than anything else but I do try to prioritize the most important things with the 80/20 rule. A time management journey would be great idea now that I think about it 💡
- How do you keep track of your to-do items?
- How specific do you get in making your to do list? Example, Do you put “laundry” or do you put “wash darks” and “fold clean clothes”?
- How do you motivate yourself?
- How can I manage good nutrition, exercise, and rest if I work 12-14 hours a day at the office? Since I cook for myself, I usually need 2 hours to cook each day. I also exercise for 2 hours a day. I sleep for 7 hours and travel for 2-3 hours each day to and from work. That’s 14 hours of stuff, which only leaves me with 10 hours for work. I have no time to socialize or anything else. How can I manage my time better?
- Do you put a time limit you want to spend on each task?
Never lol. I just migrate what is left to the next day. I usually concentrate on the one big thing and after that is done, the other 2 of top 3. Once those are done, the rest of the list I do at my leisure. Next day migrate what is not done and again go through TOP 3.

Rarely to sometimes. I have a neverending to do list, and with little kids our days and nights are unpredictable. I have good intentions, but inevitably most nights when I finally get to bed my head is swimming with all the things that did not get done.
Very rarely. I tend to try to set up my to do list to be more aspirational than just the things I have to get done today. This way, if I happen to be more productive this day than usual, I have additional goals already established to move forward with. Nothing halts my productivity faster than having to figure out what to do next because often if I have space to pause that next thing will be Netflix! I know this won’t work for everyone – if you don’t go into it with the right mindset having too much on your list can be overwhelming, but it’s something I’ve found works for me.
So far none, I think I put too much things on my to do lists thinking that I can do all of them but end up getting distracted or loosing track of time
- Do you write fun things too? Like eat ice cream.
- How do you manage tracking tasks that are both short and long term?
- How can I be more forgiving towards myself if I don’t get round to doing all the tasks I set out to complete?
- What do you do to avoid procrastination?
- How do you stay focused with exercising every day even when your whole body is sore because of the said exercise?
- Do you write your to-do list before bed or after waking up? Which once yields a longer list? Which yields more progress and completions?
- How do you remember your tasks and force yourself to check up on them in your to-do list?
- How do you prioritise your tasks? What do you consider most important?
- How should I write my to-do list?
- Sometimes I still tend to think about too many things I have to get done and I would write them out in a list. Yet I still have trouble prioritizing them and sticking to the 3 most important ones. How do I get rid of this overwhelming feeling?
